Microarray Scanners

Cutting-Edge Array Scanners

As array products from Illumina increase in complexity and density, it is important to have a microarray scanner that keeps pace. Illumina array scanning systems deliver rapid, sensitive, and accurate imaging of Illumina microarrays, for industry-leading genetic analysis results. These systems support a broad range of applications, with the flexibility to meet a variety of throughput needs.

Array Scanner for Limitless Applications

The iScan System is a high-precision microarray scanner that supports our expansive portfolio of innovative genetic analysis assays. This flexible array imaging platform can perform rapid genotyping, CNV detection, DNA methylation analysis, and gene expression profiling.

High-performance lasers, optics, and detection systems offer submicron resolution, capable of handling even the highest density multi-sample arrays. The result is dramatically reduced scan times and unmatched throughput rates, without sacrificing data quality or reproducibility.

This industry-leading array scanner offers:

  • Advanced laser and optics components to produce exceptional data quality
  • High call rates, sensitive measurement, and wide dynamic range
  • High sample throughput with fast optical scanners that can read BeadChips in minutes rather than hours
  • Support for a wide variety of DNA and RNA analysis applications, including genome-wide or targeted genotyping, methylation profiling, and cytogenetic analysis
  • Flexible format and automation options to meet a variety of throughput needs
